Anodes & Cathodes

February 3, 2017

Open your eyes and greet all the negative anodes

They’re coming for you, may as well decorate, Cathode

No place to run, turn on the oven and roll dough

Take a deep breath and welcome your enemies home

Water softens stone

 

Bow your curls to friend and foe alike

Keep pure your heart with the mindful over might

In the depth of your soul’s midnight

Carry them home

 

Walk on a wire, the trick is not to look up or down

Face toward the fire, allow all the sweat to bead your brow

Sing out and smile, the wordless song is free to all

Should they take aim, you can’t reach everyone, down you fall

Know that it’s not your fault

 

Bow your curls to friend and foe alike

Keep pure your heart with the mindful over might

In the depth of your soul’s midnight

Carry them home

The Flame Before The Flies

January 27, 2017

Am I understood?

Am I cleaning clear?

Are you going to run?

Or stay right here?

I hope you’ve bested fear

Things are not as they appear

 

But how can you be sure?

I’ve heard this all before

Six million souls in dust

A flight of one turns eyes to skies and minds

To bend toward distant light

A gilded path of lies

The flame before the flies

 

The foot that feels the ground

Belongs to armored proud

But not a shield does make

All ashes in the wake

As the sighing passed for sound

The world still spun its round

The shovels ever quaked

The earth was forced to break

 

March your feeble foot

Wrapped in Turin’s shroud

Let your hate ignite

And carry forth a solitary light

Through shadow, fog and night

You’ll make the hollow proud

Not question why endowed

 

The foot that feels the ground

Belongs to armored proud

But not a shield does make

All ashes in the wake

As the sighing passed for sound

The world still spun its round

The shovels ever quaked

The earth was forced to break

 

Pack in the railroad cars

See the snow through the bars

Mother and family

Yeah, they’ll be alright

Working will set you free

Chimney smoke slavery

Draw back your quivering bow

Cross violin strings
